FS2004 Basler Bt-67

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Found this file in the library after reading a help request for it on another forum.

In the readme file, author David Kolas does not give any credit to the possible contribution of any other developers. As a matter of fact that contribution is rather substantial as large parts of the upload are directly related to the freeware FSX Basler BT-67 project by M. Jahn (myself) and team in 2012, available at Flightsim.com or Fly Away, see

https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/14113/fsx-basler-bt-67-base-pack-v2/
https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/fslib.php?do=copyright&fid=167205

Specifically, Mr. Kolas's exterior model is a retro port of M. Jahn's exterior FSX model, the "Alfred Wegener" textures are identically named downsized versions of Daniel Fuernkaes's original textures, the aircraft.cfg is largely identical with Alexander Metzger's original work, the ref and check files are identical versions  of our 2012 files, as are  the xml gauges by Hansjoerg Naegele.

In our own 2012 readme we stated,

Hope some appropriate action will be taken.

Bumpity!

72 views and two likes, but no action? Who best to contact on this, I wonder?

This horrible rogue upload is five years old, yes, and still being downloaded as I write... maybe I should just forget about it?

Then there is this ... from AVSIM's Terms of Service:

Piracy of software destroys the basis of our hobby and AVSIM enforces anti-piracy policies strictly. If you are a pirate, advocate piracy, or use pirated material, do not register.

Software piracy, even of freeware, is not something that should be tolerated.  Glad that this one has been pulled.
